THE SKEI.L MEETIKC3.
According to announcemeut Mrs,
Mollie Mi-Gee Snell, the woman evan
gelist, arrived in Scrunton last Satur
day evening and commenced her scries
of religious meetings Sunday morn
imr In the Ouera House, "and has
preaclud two sermons every day since,
and us we go to press the meetings
are st.i'.l In progress jnd- the interest
mansfested in them by our people
and those contiguous to Scranton in.
creases at each succeeding service.
Mrs. Snell Is a native Misslssippian
and her home is Columbus, and a
widow with three children. To that
the lady is remarkable in her chosen
field of labor does not express the
idea. She is wonderful, and methods
employed in bringing souls to Christ
is somewhat out of the ordinary way.
She is devoid of all studied oratory
and well-rounded periods, but goes
among her auditors and In a manner
that Is irresistible and earnest points
the way to God and pleads and per
suades them to accept Him. When
preaching she continually walks back
and forth in front of the rostrum,
and the impassioned words, which
flow from her lips like rippling waters,
seem to sink deep into the hearts of
her hearers, and notwithstanding the
inclement weather which has prevail
ed during the time, the house has
been packed nightly, and Iter success
in causing sinners to see the error of
their way and others to accept the
religion of Jesus Christ, Is almost
phenomenal, and hundreds flock to
hear this saintly woman.
Many citizens of Scranton, who
have not attended a religoiis service
in twenty years are regular attend
ants upon the meetings and in various
ways expressing the wish that the
convicting power of God would open
their eyes to their true condition.
The fact cannot be denied that this
consecrated woman preacher lias
worked a marvelous reformation for
good in Scranton. There is certainly
a magnetism about Mrs. Snell's ex
hortations that seem to draw men to
the cause for which she is so valiantly
battling.
The earnest and convincing appeals
of this servant of the Master that
men be brought into the fold of God,
must cause the most skeptical to be
lieve that the motives which prompts
her to leave home and friends are for
not fur the accummulation of wealth
or personal agrandizement, but that
men bo confronted with the awful
truth that unless they accept the
Christian religion and turn from
sin they were damned already. We
know our people are better ror having
had Mrs. Snell with them, arid we
hope ere the meetings are brought to
a close all will realize that to escape
God's wrath they must allign them
selves on His side. The harvest is ripe.
We are no advocate of woman's
rights, in the common acceptation of
the term, hut we believe that God in
tended they should assist in reform
ing the world, and in whatever sphere
they may engage that is not unwo
manly they have our hearty support.
The Cat island swimmer is not In the

Rev. Nelson Ayres publishes a card
in the New Orleans Picayune, of June
10th, addressed to the Bishop and
Episcopalians of the Mississippi Coast
from which we excerpt the following
"My Dear Bishop : This Is to place In
your hands my resignation as mls
slonary on the coast, end with It my
resignation of the ministry of the
Episcopal church. It Is unnecessary
for me to go Into my reasons tor this
step, further than to say that I have
tt last seen tne rouy or trying to oe a
Catholic and a protestant at the
same time." Mr. Avers isaientle-
man of red nement, of broad experience
oa spienaia literary attarnmenw.
Hello, Dkmocrat-Stau !"
Well, what do you want?"
Would like to know the reason
why the merchants of Pascagoula ig

tinue hauling their freights from the

ceive their ireignts at a mueir less
cost at their own depot, and Kave the
time and wear on tueir stocK ami
wagons, hauling it a distance or
nearly two miles through a heavy
sand road. I don't think it is treat
ing an enterprise of this kind fairly
and use it for a convenience only."
That won't do. Call on the mer
chants and solicit the business."
'Hello, old reliable !"
The L. & N. Railroad Company

"The water craze has again struck
town. The town is against water
works, but mightily In favor of re
moving ponds, lakelets, holes and
other wHer reservoirs from the mid
dle of our streets. So says a respecta
ble irentleniaii, who several nights
ago while returning homeward took a
header Into one or tne (lams so com
mon in our avenues. He spoke of the
d d place in rather immeasurable,
terms compairing It to the delta of
the Nile when engulfed in Egyptian
darkness."
"The Dkmockat-Stau lias always
kicked against the useless expendi
ture of the people's money In trying to
get water out o? a well which had no
water. Anil afterwards spending the
people's money In building an im
mense tower and tank over a well
which had a How of water entirely in
adequate to the purposes intended. A
short wliile alter building tue tower
and tank and purchasing a boiler and
the necessary piping the well voted
the prohibition ticki-t and went en-
irely dry. If one-half of that money
thus spent had been used in itn
Drovinuour streets, the town to-day
would have been a dcngnt instead oi
n eve-sore to both citizens and vis
itors."
Hello, Demockat-Star !"
Hello !"
This is Cant. Volncy Brown at
?ascagoula. I just wanted to tell
on that 1 have received a letter from
he Quartermaster's olllce, United
States Army at Atlanta, Ga., author-
zing me to have the temams of the
Union soldiers buried on the Asylum
lot and Greenwood Island exhumed
ind placed into a box and shipped to
he Superintendent of the .National
Cemetery at Mobile. The report
made by Mr. u. van.virta. civil en
gineer estimates the number buried
on the Asylum lot at about 105, as he
found a head-board bearing that num
ber, but only Ml or 85 could be definite
ly located. On Greenwood Island
there are seven graves, which lie be-
i eves were all the interments m ide
there."
Guess that's the best thing that
could be done as the graves have been
left unnumbered ami unknown for so
ong a period that it Is time some ac
tion should be taken to preserve the
memory of the dead."
HON, EATON J. BOWEES.
Our neighbor the Hiloxi Herald In
speaking of the gentleman whose
name head this article, speaks out In
glowing terms of Ins fitness for the
position of State henator as follows :
A few weeks auo a nattering call
from this county was made on Hon.
E. J, llowers to stand as a candidate
for senator from the seashore district,
it being understood and conceded that
Hancock county was entitled this
time to the honor. In response to
that call Mr. Howcrs was put forward
is her choice. He should be ours.
Should lie prove a failure, then let
the blame rest with Hancock. Hut he
will not prove a failure. Look at the
record of this brainy young man and
Hnd the answer. Starting in life (not
yet out or his teens) on the small sal
ary of $12.50 per month, ho applied
tnmscir studiously to his books, ana
by close application, and controlled
by an Indomitable will, gradually rose
in his chosen profession, the law, to
his present high and enviable position
ranking to-day with the best legal
talents In the .State. Not within the
boundaries of this (treat State can
there be found a lawyer of ills aue and
experience Ills equal, and certainly
few superior, even among the older
members of the bar. He has met and
defeated the best and brightest. Of
wonderfully quick perception, he
grasps at once all the points in a case,
ana presents tnem witn it real clearness
and force to judge and Jury. His
wit is as keen as a Damascus blade,
and flashes as the sunlight from its
polished surface his principles as
firm and true as Its metal the sym
metrical proportions of his mind as
shapely. In one respect only does he
differ from this emblem of beauty and
strengtn his conscience is tree from
its elasticity. He wears not the badge
of serfdom the little brass collar
with Itstlntlnnabulating attachment.
His name is a household word in MIS'
sissippl. Wherever the political fight
wages fast and furious, in the fore
front can he be found. Persuasive
and eloquent, each rounded period, is
met with applause tbe spont aneous
trtnute to merit.
Such a man is this gallant Missis
slpplan. Gifted by nature with all
the splendid attributes of man, the
orator, the statesman, he deserves
well of his countrymen. In honoring
nim tne people nonor tnemseives.
By the force of his luminous Intel
lect, by his unswerving devotion to
auiy, oy nis ooia ana roaoiy position
on all nubile Questions, he Is destined
to rise higher and higher ; and It Is no
Idle prediction that the nails of con-
fffees will yet be honored 'with his
-presence.
